Welcome to the Walter George Whitman Archival Collection.  The collection is a part of Salem State University's Digital Salem Project.  It's goal is to connect the university and city communities to their past through digital humanities.

Here you can find the collections of Salem State University's former Science Department Chair, Walter G. Whitman.  Provided are samples of his journal entries, lantern slides, and postcards collected during his time in China and India from 1925 to 1926.  Through his collections we can capture a glimpse of what it was like as an American exploring Asia in the early twentieth century.
